after the united states ambassador to libya was killed. >> the list of yemen -- en route protesters stormed the gates there. >> >> just as united states officials feared, the unrest in the middle east has spread. in the capital today, hundreds of angry demonstrators burned the american flag and stormed the united states embassy compound. there were able to breach usually tight security around the embassy to get on to the grounds. a senior obama administration official says the protests seem to be motivated by a film. the film is on youtube. it depicts the profit muhammed as a womanizer. >> it appears to have a deeply cynical purpose to denigrate a great religion and to promote rage. >> in cairo, protesters again -- outside the united states embassy. they fired tear gas. >> we certainly hope and expect that there will be steps taken to avoid violence. >> in libya, a very different scene. yesterday, people took to the streets not to protest, but to grieve. on tuesday, militants stormed their. four americans were left dead. including j. christopher stevens. >> this is tragic that he di

[applause] or, the woman who went on facebook after paul ryan voted to defund planned parenthood and posted, i guess they do not understand us military wives go to planned parenthood when a doctor on base cannot see us. mr. romney and mr. ryan are campaigning for women's vote tby saying women need their help. this is coming from two men who would turn women's health-care decision over to our bosses and who will not even stand up for equal pay for women. my grandmother back in texas would have said, any more help from mitt romney, [unintelligible] here is the good news. we
be a movement for the united states to withdraw to fortress america, to renounce our -- our -- our service to the world in helping these countries achieve the same democracy and freedom that our forefathers strived for? i do not mean to use his death as any kind of political agenda, but i think my friend and i remember him well enough to know that the worst outcome of this tragedy wod be for the united states to withdraw. in fact, i am confident that if he were here, he would be urging us to get right back in, get -- bring these extremists to justice and press on with the democracy and freedom that the people of libya deserve and have earned at great loss of blood and treasure. mr. lieberman: mr. president, i couldn't agree more with my friend from arizona. it would -- it would really dishonor the service of chris stevens and the three other americans who served us in libya if their murders by these extremists led us to retrench and pull out of libya and stop supporting the new libyan government, democratically elecd, pull out of other parts of the arab world. that would be exactly the opp

reauthorization makes plain that discrimination is not the policy of these united states. it says no program funded by federal vawa dollars can turn away a domestic violence victim because of their sexual orientation or their gender identity, whether the victim is gay or straight, american indian, white, black or latino, in my view, madam president, and in the view of so many in this chamber, they deserve protection from abuse and justice for their abusers. there are two other important changes in this vawa reauthorization as passed through the senate. both of which help ensure we bring perpetrators to justice no national who their victims are or where the claims are committed. these help law enforcement to secure needed testimony from victims who are unwilling to come forward due to reasonable fears of deportation. so in total, all three of these important changes to the substance and scope of vawa i think strengthen it, i think carry forward its initial spirit and i think are completely appropriate things for this senate and the house to do in our every five-year reconsideration and reauth
. >> i believe mitt romney wants to be president of all of the united states. this week we learned mitt romney wants to be president of half of the united states. if mitt romney were president, he weent waste time worrying about the 47% of americans who he believes are victims, who romney believes are unwilling to take personal responsibility and those are his words, madam president, not mine. he'll only worry about how the other half lives, i guess. that's what mitt romney told a group of wealthy donor at a closed door fundraiser in florida a month or so ago. but it turns out it wasn't closed. someone videotaped every word he said to his wealthy donors. but this is among other things what he said and this is a quote. "there are 47% who are dependent upon government, who believe that they're victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they're entitled to health care, to food, to housing, you name it." mitt romney said his job as president would not be to, "worry about those people." but half of americans are those people. he went on to sa
people. because the senate bill was inclusive and every woman member , republican, of the united states senate voted for it. everyone. that was the difference between the two bills. those who were included and a more specific group that are now included, which we think they ought to be, but we also think there aren't people include who had need to be. with all due respect i think my characterization was absolutely accurate. but it's interesting, mr. speaker, that we still haven't eabed the question -- answered the question. we tend to want to talk about other things. 98% of americans should not get a tax increase on january 1 that are making less than $250,000 individually as a family. i think we agree on that. mr. speaker, now i haven't heard that we don't agree on that but we agree on that which means there are 2% on which we do not agree. and that bill has not been brought to the floor that passed the united states senate dealing with that 98%. or 97% of small business. now, mr. speaker, it seems to me if we have agreement on 98% and the president of the united states will sign that
the united states in the wake of that antimuslim film. take a look at this map. you can see just how widespread the protests are. even though many have been violent, there were also several peaceful protests in many countries. and the violent protests were actually a lot smaller than some may have expected. now, many americans just really don't understand why these protests are breaking out across the world. joining me in studio now to help break it down, michael han lan, specialist in foreign policy. good morning, michael. thank you for coming in. >> my pleasure. >> i have to say, the first question i have when these protests first started breaking out, seemed to be a very serious situation. then as they continue to go on and be a little bit sporadic, i wonder how much is authentic, related to the film, how much of it is just an excuse to protest america? >> i think it's a great question. it's also very important you emphasize correctly, but in a way a lot of people haven't, these protests are generally small. a number of them are nonviolent. today it's already midday sunday and mos
is scary is he is running for the highest office, president of the united states. he is supposed to care about all people. what he does is supposed to be representative of the united states. that's the key. when he made the statement he does not care antaeus separating people. he is the one who is being divisive talks the rich and poor. it is very scary. host: patricia, you are calling on our independent line, have you ever voted for a republican? caller: i voted for bush the second time. host: did you vote for president obama in 2008? caller: i did. i have two master's degrees. i am not lazy. i worked very hard and enjoy working to take care of my family. and i don't depend on the government for anything. host: did you ever think about not voting for president obama in 2012? have you considered voting for governor romney? caller: no, because i love the president and i think he's doing a wonderful job. host: we will keep talking about this video that was leaked yesterday. but there is another headline in "chicago tribune " -- the washington post this morning has a story about the debt re

that threatens the very viability of the united states senate. last july the obama administration used the flimsiest of arguments, granted themselves the authority to waive federal welfare work requirements. and whether or not what they, the obama administration intends to accomplish with these waivers is good welfare policy has been the subject of robust debate. i'm not here to argue the merits or lack thereof of the underlying welfare policy goals of the obama administration. what i am here to do is to make a plea to my fellow senators, as senators we simply cannot let this action stand. if we fail to stand together as senators in defense of our constitutional duty to be the ones to draft legislation, we might as well pack up our bags and go home, because we will have opened the door for this administration and future administrations to unilaterally decide they can waive precedent, congressional intent, and actual legislative language as senators have scrupulously debated and compromised on. if we do not stand together as the united states senate, we will be ceding our authority to t

to fund programs all over the united states where we wouldn't only improve -- we wouldn't only build things that we need, but improve them. the american society of civil engineers has addressed this issue, mr. speaker. what they have said, 2.3 trillion of infrastructure maintenance needs to be done. i come from the city of minneapolis and in my city, we had a bridge fall into the mississippi river. maintenance in this country is critical. we have bridges that are old and deteriorating all over this country. we have bridges that are in need of repair, roads as well, and we also have other projects that need to be taken care of, in terms of our grid and wastewater treatment, in terms of all types of important infrastructure. but we have not invested. we are relying on things that our grandparents gave us. we are relying on eisenhower-era infrastructure, because we haven't in our age focused on the needs of the american people to have infrastructure bill. just to talk a little bit more about the american jobs act, it would also extend cutting payroll taxes in half for 98% of businesses.

>>> good morning and welcome to "this week." >>> the president of the united states. >> obama on offense. >> the path we offer may be harder but it leads to a better place and i'm asking you to choose that future. >> the president and his party make their pitch. >> we believe that we're all in this together is a far better philosophy than you're on your own. >> ask osama bin laden if he's better off now than he was four years ago? >>> this man has passion in his heart and a spine of steel. >> did obama convince voters that he deserves to be rehired? with less than two months to go, what will define the final sprint and break this election deadlock? >> we'll our headliner paul ryan. >> we'll win this debate. >>> plus, mayor cory booker and rand paul join our powerhouse roundtable. george will, roberts and paul krugman. >>> hello again. conventions are done. debates are coming. new polls show a bit of a bounce for democrats. but friday's mee owe kerr's jobs report may be camp that down. >> when our opponent says that our nation is in this decline, they are dead wrong. this is a

. second term as president of the united states of america. their sales pitch at their convention down in florida. >> boo! vote. i have to say, it was something despite all the challenges we face in this new century, we saw agenda out of last century. you might as well have watched it on black-and-white tv with some rabbit ears. it should have been on nick at nite. if you did not dvr it, let me give you a basic recap of what they said. good the economy is bad. it is all obama's fault, and governor romney has the secret to creating jobs and growing the economy. they spent the most time on me. they were talking about me, and there was a lot of hard truths nobody bothered to tell you what romney had his chance to let you creation, he did not offer you a single new idea. policies that have been sticking it to the middle class four years, and after the convention governor romney came here to ohio, and he said he is going to be the coach that leads america to a winning season. playbook. on first down, he hikes taxes by family with kids in order to pay roughness to me.

investment, which, in turn, would lower the growth of incomes in the united states. and so, while we talk about growing the economy and economic growth and the need to get businesses around this country hiring again, at the same time there is a negative pressure being place odd them because congress can't do its job to control spending. $16 trillion in debt. you mentioned it was nearly $51,000 for every man, woman and child. we have a 10-month-old, he owes $51,000 as a share of the federal debt. $51,000 a piece. and that negative pressure, that mounting debt, deficits that are over $1 trillion a year, makes it moran more difficult for businesses to have access to the capital they need to grow and make it difficult for companies to operate because they find themselves competing with the federal government for those scares resources. next thing, the government will have to look at tax increases. and so the challenges our bases face, congress, can you get government out of the way so we can let america work and run our businesses the way we want to, not the way washington wants to. but at th
: yes. i am listening to everybody talking. the woman earlier talking about people in the united states spending as much as they do, that is true. i worked in a diner. i see the spending and i see the waste. my business reflects on wall street. wall street reflects on my business. when the upper class is wealthy, the business trickles down. i am doing well. when people are holding onto their money, i do not do so well. it affects the small people more than the bigger people. host: what do you do? caller: a server. host: what are the tips like? caller: they are not like they used to be. the spending is not the same. these are everyday people. these are not luxury items. they need at a diner to spend some time with the children. there is no time. it is not like this is porter house or something like that. this is a hamburger type of place. regarding our spending, i live alone. i do spend more. i believe the gas price reflects on everything. the cost of everything has gone up. as a result of the increase in gas price. i take public transportation and i still pay more. that goes up as well.
an end to such behavior. >> thank you very much. there was a rally in support of the united states in front of the white house yesterday. muslims from libya came out to say only extremists hate the united states. they held candles and talked about the impact of this week's deadly violence. inspired by a similar demonstration supporting ambassador stevens last night. the incidents overseas raise the issue of the cultural and social divine between muslims, christians and people of the jewish faith. we're going to explore that more in our next hour with a board member of the muslim society. >> over the past day we've learned more about this antimuslim movie which has sparked this outrage. it has called innocence of muslims. it had been written and directed by an israeli american. but both in the u.s. and israel have turned up nothing. antimuslim act at this visit who says he served as a consultant says he spoke with him yesterday and he was concerned about what happened to ambassador stevens. some actors in the film say they were misled about the movie and claim some dialogue was dubb
barak obama, president of the united states. democrats believe in reigniting the american dream by removing barriers to success and building ladders of opportunity for all. so that everyone can succeed. jobs are central to the american dream. and president obama has focused on jobs from day one. under president obama we've gone from losing 800,000 jobs a month to adding 4.5 million private sector jobs over the last 29 months. the american dream is about freedom. jobs means freedom. for workers to support their families. working with president obama, democrats passed a lilly better pay fair act to strengthen women's rights in the workplace. we repealed don't ask don't tell so our troops can serve the country they love regardless of whom they love. we made college more affordable. house democrats passed the dream act. but senate republicans blocked it. with president obama, democrats enacted the toughest consumer safeguards in history. to protect main street from wrecklessness of some on wall street. democrats passed healthcare reform to allow americans the freedom to pursue their
in charlotte. >> thank you very much. i am honored to accept your nomination for president of the united states. >> this is not my speech. can we pull up my speech, please? the american dream is not a sprint or even a marathon. but the relay. our families do not always cross the finish line of in one generation but each generation passes on to the next the fruits of their labor. my grandmother never owned a house. she cleaned other people's houses so she could afford to rent her own but she saw her daughter become the first in her family to graduate from college and my mother fought hard for civil rights so instead of a mop, i could hold this microphone. >> barack obama is still the same man i fell in love with all those years ago. yes. he is the same man who started his career by turning down high- paying jobs and working and struggling in neighborhoods where steel plants have shut down and fighting to build those communities and get people back to work. success is not about how much money you make, it is about the difference you make in people's lives.

in washington. consulates around the united states. we make sure they are adequately protected. particularly, when you get a rocket attack like that, it is an act of war and all to be treated as an act of war. i don't have the details yet. if we had an embassy personnel murdered, that is a sad situation. you have to express regret for the families that are involved. but the most important thing is we have to show the world that we are a nation that lives by international law. we expect other countries to live by international law. this is a violation of international law. your doctor take appropriate action. host: hear the statement from secretary clinton on the death of the personnel, ambassador christopher stevens and three others. the statement goes on from there. secretary clinton says all the americans we lost in yesterday's attacks made the ultimate sacrifice. we condemn this vicious and violent attack which took their lives, which they had committed to helping the libyan people reach for a better future." guest: of all your years ago the president made a gracious effort going around t
demonstrated a willingness to tackle long- term debt problem of the united states. i think he is prepared to do that and prepared to push through a plan if we make some amount of progress in this election, but i assume he will be a great second-term president. >> i agree with melody, i think the election will be very close, but i believe the president will be reelected, because i do not think this country wants to go back to the policies being advocated by the mitt romney/paul ryan ticket to a place where we're talking about reducing taxes on middle income people. a place where we're reducing regulation in a way that opens us up to the same abuses that got us into the financial crisis that led to the recession we are still climbing out of. i do not think women want to go back to a place where health care choices is something that is problematic. where our environment is at risk, because we do not have an energy policy that recognize the needs for clean, alternative sources of energy. i do not think the country wants to go back to that place. i do a thing when the president reelected, one of the
to the protests in a number of countries. let me state very clearly, and i hope it is obvious that the united states government had absolutely nothing to do with this video. we absolutely reject its content and message. america's commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. as you know, we are a place that is home to people of all religions. many come to this country seeking the right to exercise their own religion, including of course millions of muslims. we have the greatest respect for people of faith. to us and to me personally, this video is disgusting and reprehensible. as i said yesterday, there is no justification, none at all, for responding to this video with violence. we condemn the violence that has resulted in the strongest terms. we greatly appreciate that many muslims in the united states and around the world have spoken out on this issue. violence has no place in religion and is no way to honor religion. islam respects the fundamental dignity of human beings. it is a violation of that fundamental dignity to wage attacks on innocents. as long
this country faces the starkest choice for president of the united states that has in that least my lifetime. that means in all of your lifetime. but for all the talk governor romney and congressman ryan have engaged in, they do not have the courage yet to tell you what their policies for this nation really are. it will shock you, i have the courage to tell you this morning with their policies are. [laughter] it's amazing if you listen to them. they talk so much about how they care about medicare. you would think it was a republican idea the way they talk about it. you think it was republicans supporting it. they talk about how they want to preserve it. they do it sincerely and talk about how they sincerely want to preserve and protect the benefits for all those people, guaranteeing all those people on medicare now, the 30 million seniors that nothing will change. if you listen to them these days, you would think that had been a republican plan all along. that's what they say and that is what they exude believe, and these are facts. they don't tell you that there fan with a meat -- their pla
critics. >> mob of al qaeda sympathizers in egypt forcing the united states into making a statement essentially of apology. on 9/11 of all days, for something which we are not responsible for. i would say to the mob, go to hell. >> reporter: the administration later disavowed its own embassy's response saying the statement by embassy cairo was not cleared by washington and does not reflect the views of the united states government. the ultimate fear for the administration, that libya and egypt may be just the beginning. will this be contained in those two countries or there will be uprisings in other countries, as well? that's something we obviously don't know. but u.s. embassies around the globe have been told to on high alert. back to you guys. >> thank you. >>> in a statement this morning, secretary of state hillary clinton identified one of the other americans killed. he is shaun smith a foreign service information management officer. he was a husband and a father of two. >>> the secretary of state added that diplomats and development experts stand on the front lines every day f
but meeting on view? >> guest: you are the president of the united states every minute of the day. you talk to the leader in turkey and a hugely important leader in that region of the world and pick up the phone and talk to the president of egypt and tell them, they have to have a strong reaction to the violence in our embassy and they have to protect our consulate and embassies and people that work in them it is it not just one meeting on a particular day of new york. the president is actively involved and engaged in the most dangerous day of the world every day of the week. >> chris: mitt romney released tax returns and this is what hoe showed. 14.wobpercent in 2011. and summary and no returns, he paid an average of 22 percent and never less than 13.7 percent. this is the single dumbest question i ever have asked. does that end the issue for the obama campaign? >> he gave the accountant years and the american poem, two. what is he hiding? why does he has corporations in uda and investment in the kaymens and someone investing in the chinese state oil company and banks in china? american pe
of the united states. someday it will be a woman. someday it'll be a hispanic or another white male. the americans have a good grasp of that. what dole said -- joel said is right on target. that is not a priority in terms of trying to message on the president's race. >> when you're talking about any ism, we have both been in situations where we have been treated sexistly. it is much more powerful when john paulson out than we do. -- calls it out than when we do. >> allow to push back that republicans are the only -- i want to push back on the thought republicans are only pushing the wedge issues. obama the same mitt romney will support you. how is that any different than what the republicans are doing? >> they brought it up. we did not. if john had said we are going to get the run on the war on women. they're going to do with the birth control and everything else. we would have said everything was settled in 1960. i do not think they will be that stupid. that is a moderate governor hugh did not have that record in massachusetts. these stands were unimaginable two years ago. we would
that immigrated to the united states, and subtract the amount of americans that moved from the u.s. to mexico. how many do you have? 0. that is the net migration pilot like to -- migration. i would like to call xavier becerra to the stage. good to see you. first elected to congress in 1992. he is seeking his 11th term in california. he is the vice-chair of the house democratic caucus sits on the ways and means committee. thank you for joining. thises sodium-putting in your arm right now -- this is sodium ion putting in your are right now. what happens if president obama is elected assuming that congress stays the same? >> jake, you used the wrong word. it is not if, it is when, and it makes no difference if it is a democrat or a republican in office, we will get immigration reform. it is just a matter of when. i believe president obama we will get it done in the next term with or without republican help because honestly, i believe, and one of these days i will name them, there are conservative republicans who are tired of this. they want to move on. they would like to do what is right for the coun
graduates in the united states right now who are basically indentured servants because they have these brutal unforgiving loans and they don't have jobs to be able to pay them back because wages are declining, we have high entrenched unemployment, and the jobs that are coming back are low wage, insecure, poor benefit jobs. so if you took student loans -- students, who are very good at communicating on the internet, if they decided they were going to create a peaceful revolution in the ballot box, they could do so because our campaign is the one solution that's will to, number one, forgive student debt, instead of bailing out the banks again for another trillion dollars, which is what the latest quantitative easing is going to do, we could -- we could be bailing out the students with the quantitative easing, buying up the bad debt in the student securities, the student loan securities, and essentially wiping out student debt because public higher education is a public good, we provided public education through high school degree, throughout the 20th century, but in the 21st centur
of the united states. it made us proud as americans to know that those prejudices that we've had in the past are falling away. >> beyond some of the more personal areas, we sat down at campaign headquarters the next morning for more detailed discussion about where governor romney stands on the key issues of the campaign. so governor, we talked last night about jobs and the economy and also the debt. i want to begin there. you've called the debt and our deficit a moral crisis and yet in addition to extending the bush tax cuts you want to cut tax rates an additional 20%. you've rejected a 10-1 spending ratio when it comes to spending to increasing taxes. and yet you want to balance the budget. the math simply doesn't add up, does it? >> actually it does. five different economic studies including one at harvard, princeton, aei and a couple at the "wall street journal" all show that if we bring down our o top rates and go across the board, bring down rates for everyone in america, but also limit deductions and exemptions for people at the high end, you can keep the progressivity in the code, rem
on, good jobs. right here in the united states of america. [applause] when it comes to the health of our families, barack refused to listen to those folks who told him to leave health reform for another day. another president. he did not care whether it was the easy thing to do politically. that is not how he was raised. he cared that it was the right thing to do. [applause] he did it because he believed that here in america, our grandparents should be able to afford their medicine. our kids should be able to see a doctor when they are sick. and no one in this country should ever go broke because of an accident or illness. [applause] and he believes that women are more than capable of making our own choices about our bodies and our health care. [applause] that is what my husband stands for. when it comes to giving our kids reeducation they deserve, barack knows that like me and so many of you, he never could have attended college without financial aid. and believe it or not, when we were first married, our combined monthly student loan bill was actually higher than our market. we
as the democratic candidate for president of the united states. we have a pretty feisty audience. >> we have so many paul ryan fans. paul ryan, paul ryan, paul ryan! yes! yes, can you feel the love. i bet we have a lot of crimson tide fans, too. roll tide! >> it's all right. we have with us contribute mike barnicle and senior political analyst mark halperin and msnbc political analyst john heilemann, whose cover story for this week's "new york" magazine is on joe biden's role in the campaign. >> what a great cover. >> as we said, later today democrats will kick off their national convention here in north carolina, a state with 15 electoral votes up for grabs this november. president obama won north carolina by a microscopic number of votes in 2008. but a new poll shows the president will have his work cut out for him if he hopes to win here again. mitt romney currently leads the president 47% to 43%. one of the first orders of business will be to adopt the party platform. it echos president obama's call for higher taxes on wealthier americans while backing same-sex marriage and abortion rights. it s
now he is a candidate for the united states senate. governor kaine it's good to see you. >> great to be with you. thanks. >> woodruff: this convention tonight feels like something you would see in the middle of new york city or another big american city. it doesn't have the feel of a convention. >> first praise to charlotte. i was the chair and chose it as a city because they were so excited to welcome everyone here. they are doing a great job. you have a wonderful feeling in the room. people know that the next nine weeks are real challenging but there's a lot of excitement. >> ifill: it should be said that v.a. v- is front and center on the floor. that's not by accident. >> it's not by accident. we were used to nosebleed seats before but 2008 and 2012 we got good seats. >> ifill: you used yourselves as check mate to describe the role that virginia has in this process. does it help you running for senate? >> i think it helps. i'm a virginians before i'm a politician. we were irrelevant in presidential politics. if you -- democrat, republican or independent you were watching what h
